Chris Vernon, a radio host from Memphis, is reporting that OJ Mayo to the Clippers is a possibility now that Gordon is out.

been told again keep an eye on the Clippers for a possible OJ Mayo deal (Bledsoe/ Aminu/ Kaman possibles)

This I would welcome. Mayo would be terrific off the bench when Gordon returns and would give us a higher quality player off the bench. + him and Gordon can play the 1 and 2 if we need to pour on the scoring. Prob is, I don't see who or what we'd trade to Memphis.Bledsoe is of 0 use to them with Conley playing the way he is and clearly panned out. Kaman I could see, but that may mean Gasol is gone at years end and they dont wish to re-sign him. Maybe we can ask for a pick + Mayo, or Mayo and Gasol and toss them a 2nd rounder.

i don't think this is a good idea. OJ mayo is very one dimensional and he's the same height as EJ but a lot scrawnier. he's a good shooter but he's not as consistent as he should be and slacks on D a lot which is why he warms the benches in memphis and has a great game here or there. definitely would keep bledsoe aminu AND kaman over OJ.

what would they do with Kaman though? Wouldn't they try to get a PG in a trade involving OJ?

Don't know why they would want Kaman ($)....but I would try a of trade Bledsole + Bulter or Smith (expiring contracts).......keep Aminu.

Meh, I'd be cool with this since Blake won't allow him to piss and moan, and it's not like we need him to be some all star guard, just a stop gap til ej comes back. But how can we trade kaman with his injuries seemingly getting worse then better, this guys legs are totally shot.

Way too much to give up for Mayo, unless I'm reading it wrong. I'd rather have Curry instead of Mayo because he's a much better fit for the team, IMO.

I change my stance. We desperately need Hasheem Thabeet. Clearly the most underrated player of all time.

I feel like OJ Mayo would be perfect for the clippers. He can be our Jason Terry typer Player racking up the assists and scoring in Bunches

Ya I know. lol

Trading Aminu or Bledsoe for Mayo would leave the Clips no depth at the PG and SF positions.

I don't think trading Kaman for Mayo works financially unless the Clips takes back some other contracts. Kaman is making twice as much as Mayo since he's still in his rookie contract.

OJ Mayo would be great if he really is willing to play off the bench. VDN already likes using the guard trio and Mayo could be a perfect third guard.

Still prefer a good SF, then Curry, Then Mayo

Basically, I think we're going to be linked to every team trying to move somebody since we have alot of assets to trade. Unitl I start hearing things from sources closer to the Clippers, I'm not holding my breath.

I dont think much of this as a real rumor,,heck anyone could tweet that Griffin will be traded,,,,BUT, when he was up to be drafted the Clips FO kept telling we STHs that OJ was going to be our pick if we had the chance (which we did not) so at one time, pre-NBA days, he was on the radar. But I cant see it now.

Chris Vernon is the guy that threw this out there and he's very well respected around the league. He also talks with the Grizzlies owner and front office all the time. This is coming from a very good Memphis source.

I really don't see this happening though. The front office has talked about doing things the right way and I don't see how getting Mayo is the right way. The guys got a poor attitude, got in a fight with Tony Allen this year, and broke a teammates jaw in college. He's pouting now coming off the bench in Memphis and I'm sure he'll do the same here.

OJ Mayo is about to be suspended 10 games by the league as well. Smells like drugs.

While we're talking rumors:

Grant in West Palm Beach asked John Hollinger:

"CP3 to the Clippers. Paul. Gordon. Aminu. Griffin. Jordan. Looks like a championship team to me."

John Hollinger replies:

"Right team, wrong point guard. Deron Williams is the guy who may very well be a Clipper in 2012. People think of Texas with him but he actually lives in San Diego in the offseason."

I think memphis may want kaman because they know that they're gonan lose gasol to new york and z-bo is saying he wants to play in a bigger stage. mayo is complaining in memphis, but here in LA where he went to college, I think he'll be fine coming off the bench.

tested positive for steriods. This guy is bad news. I am sure he really nice and stuff but a headache waiting to happen. I would pass. I think need to go for Jeff Green of OKC anyways.

Now that Mayo got suspended, maybe we can trade Rasual Butler for him. I have to say, I was hoping that the Clippers traded up to get Mayo instead of drafting Eric Gordon 3 years ago. For once, the Clippers made the right decision. That said, I probably would still trade Kaman for Mayo being that Kaman will likely be out 10 more games this year anyway. I still think Mayo is going to be a stud in this league.

If anything his trade value just plummeted, I'd still get him on the cheap if possible.

If you're smoking crack, you're a druggie. Shooting roids doesn't make you a druggie, just a little stupid.

at least now we can get him for cheap. But what did Olshey say this summer. We need good character guys and OJ Doesn't fit that bill.

This is great news! Who cares about OJ' s personality. the guy is a stud. A lot of people complain about the possibility of having beasley come over during the off season but look at how beasley is balling now. At the end of the day, talent wins not attitude

What issue do they have?

Edit: Baron just basically called Mayo a nobody a few years ago.. hardly a legit issue man. Matt Barnes and Kobe almost got into a fist fight and do fine as teammates. Same with Artest and Kobe. Same with a lot of players.

Both Melo and OJ have attitude problems. I'd rather have Melo than OJ.
